Over 4,200 students were nominated to the state level Governor's Honors Program competition this year and nearly 1,500 of them participated in this year's state interview/audition selection process. 

The Georgia Governor's Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school students who will be rising juniors and seniors during the program. The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom and that is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.

 Applying for and auditioning for GHP is a rigorous and highly competitive process. Finalists progressed through several rounds of intensive competition, including interviews and performances, to be named as finalists for the 2024 Governor's Honors Program.
